By the mid-1930s, the United States was still struggling to squeeze its way out of the Great Depression. These difficult times were characterised by hunger, crime, high unemployment, major wealth inequality, limited social mobility, and political strife that tested the fortitude of the American economy. The government intervened, establishing new economic policies, which eventual led to reviving free market principles. By the early 1940’s it had become apparent that the US had pulled itself up by its bootstraps, restoring a stable and growing economy defined by the opportunity that a free market provides. This game aims to mimic the spirit of the free market: To profit by investing, selling, trading, taking risks, paying attention to market trends, anticipating opponents’ strategy, cooperating with others, but also profiting from them as well, all in the spirit of making the most money.

In this game, you will find yourself managing a group of people who work together in different assignments, aiming to grow their fortune according to your vision. Throughout the game, you will purchase merchandise at the auction, deliver goods to shops and factories, establish partnerships in shops and factories, or possibly take over other players' business and capital. You will also attend events, influence politics, win awards, and garner all kinds of influence to help your businesses, partnerships, and assets flourish as you move forward in the game. The trick is simple: buy when the market is low and sell when it's high to make the most profit before your opponents do. The most successful businessman wins the game.
